Styling Your Concrete Floors to Meet these Top Trends

When it comes to the basement floor above, and getting it to be a very close match, you’ll want an 80-grip diamond grind 17’’ machine from HTC, and this will be for evening out the surfaces along your concrete floor (you can also use this machine to remove excess concrete and materials from the floor). Using Camel dye (Brickform’s is recommended), you can seal on and dye the entire floor with colour. After this, use a low solids epoxy sealer.

After the floor is dry, commence using Sand colour (again, Brickform’s (mixing brands is a bad thing to do here)), and this will make the concrete darker and more earthy in its tone. After this, it is time to use that sealant again to seal the new colour.

If you’re looking for a border effect, a darker coloured epoxy can be used to create a four-inch border around your entire room, and you can finish off with a clear coat.

Acid-Staining Without Acid-Staining

If you have a concrete floor that is in bad shape and you need to replace it, think again – instead, try using a method that can make your old floor new again by looking acid-stained without actually being acid-stained. You must use a white skim coat, a taped tile pattern, a beige spray coat, which is knocked down with a trowel, which should be immediately followed by a highlight spray of charcoal gray, and then an antique coat of desert beige.

The interesting part is that the seal coat is a water-based sealer, which ends up being poured and smoothed onto the floor with a squeegee. When it comes to the second coating, it requires being rolled on the floor with rollers.
